Use Five! Use number 5, or five items, five colors or five words… interesting challenge over at Anything but a card, that moved my fantasy and made me create this art journal page:
So I have number 5 several times, I have five items and I have even five numbers… let’s begin. I used a self rusted tissue wrap to begin with.
Next I used number stencil with distress ink (aged mahogany and forest moss) to create a numerical background and I highlighted my “five”s with gel pen.
Then I had these cute little craft tags, I took five of them, colorized them with distress ink and stamped on them 5 with archival ink.
I stitched them on one side of my spread and on the other side I added my text about five the number. I dropped some shadows with charcoal pencil and I also added another five items: five self rusted paperclips.
As I felt I still miss some details I added the numbers from one to five with modeling paste colored with naples yellow.
And on the top of the other side as well, I even made them pop with outlining them with black gel pen.
Finally I added smaller number at the lower part.
Hope you “gimme a high five” after my Use Five take. And don’t forget to head over to Anything but a card site to see great projects around five.
